An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

 (Pro 29:6 KJV) In the transgression of an evil man there is a snare: but the righteous doth sing and rejoice.

You don’t need to look too far to see people who are trapped in life in such a way that there seems to be no hope.  It could be economical.  It could be health.  It could be family issues.  I always wonder how much of their situation is a result of their choices and how much was beyond their control.  We need to be careful but also aware.  A judgmental attitude can be destructive but making excuses doesn’t help either.

Let’s take the economical traps of life.  We all know people who have their credit cards up to the limit.  Maybe you are one of them.  We know people who have filed bankruptcy.  At the other end we see people who are so addicted to making money that their lives are empty.  You can’t do much about an airplane that crashes on your house.  Unless you are on a golf course holding a club up in the air during a storm, you can’t usually be blamed for lightning striking you.  On the other hand, most of us have bought things with our credit card that we did not need.  Many times it might have been something we don’t even want.  

So?  It is never too late to start making righteous choices.  It is never too late to start digging out.  You may not have time to finish but you can begin.  Be honest with yourself.  I find it very easy to blame others for my mistakes.  I am not saying I blame you, but I might, given a chance.
